Scaling Business Education for Undergraduate Engineers
It is widely accepted that engineering skills are greatly augmented by commercial and business skills, however the biggest pool of engineering education, Higher Education Institution (HEI) undergraduate degrees, lacks business content. This project supports David Falzani (Honorary Professor at NUBS) and his exploration, discovery and prototyping of a scalable route to introduce commercial and business education to undergraduate engineers, using business prize competitions and seminars.
To date, competitions and seminars have been achieved at Nottingham University, City University London, University of Bristol and Kingston University. Additional funding from the Gatsby Charitable Foundation has led to an increase in the speed and scaling of prize competitions which will continue into 2019 and beyond.
